Are you familiar with the beananimal overflow? I'm not sure how it may work in your case becuase you have two separate overflows. But it is definitely worth looking into. Here's the thread.

To Reef Central
first you need to calculate your head loss and then use this calculator to determine what size you need.

+1 I had a 75 set up with bean animals design and loved it. it is a failsafe super quiet set-up and I would definitely recommend it as well.

those are fine, if you have some diy skills in ya you can easily make them yourself with plumbing you can get at home depot or lowes, and save yourself some money.
